Nice Overview of the City of Havana

A brief visit here is good to see the size and scope of Havana. One of the tour guides can walk you through the history and growth of the city

If you are into miniatures or if you happen to be right in the area it might be worth a stop. Good way to see an overview of Havana. We were ready to leave after a quick 5 min walk around.

As an Urban Designer, I had heard about this model and there was no way I was gonna take a pass on it. I am glad I went in! I absolutely loved this model of Havana. It was apparently commissioned work and it turned out really well. It costs 1.50 CUC to get in plus 2 extra CUC if you... More

Well worth a visit. The model gives a good overview of the old city (there's also a model of the whole of the city further west; didn't go), and if you're lucky, you might eavesdrop on somebody else's guided tour and learn a bit. Hang around for the change of lights.

The model of Havana is worth visiting if you are in Playa. It gives you a really good sense of the city... especially areas that you are unlikely to see as a visitor to the city.

In mid-May 2012, I visited the site of Maqueta de la Habana and found the gates closed and locked with chains. My driver asked around and was told the building is closed for remodeling with no indication when it will re-open.
